What is the highest paying cyber security job?Industry Leader Answer
One of the highest paying cyber security jobs is penetration testing. Those with experience tend to earn around £65k p.a. and upward. The highest paying cyber security jobs, though, are typically at management level. Managers can expect to earn anything from £70k – £100k p.a. and upward. To become a manager requires dedication, commitment, and a solid understanding of your field. Plus, you must also be able to show leadership qualities.
We should point out though that penetration testing is NOT an entry-level subject! You’ll need to do foundation training first. Ideally, you should look to gain something like a CompTIA Security+ certification first as part of a cyber security beginners package.Answered on 18 Sep 2019.
